Adventures by land, sea and air

Book
If enjoying nature 100% means that just contemplating it isn't enough for you and that you have to really experience it, you've come to the right place. Here is a selection of the Catalan companies which have been awarded the Active & Adventure label by the Catalan Tourist Board. These are your go-to places if you are seeking well-organised outdoors adventure activities.

Combine different activities

Diversity is one of the traits which best defines the adventure activities on offer in Catalonia. You can do parachuting, balloon rides, skydiving, climbing, canyoning, water-skiing, canoeing, sailing... You will find activities suited to all ages and levels of fitness which can be enjoyed throughout the year. In winter there are fantastic backcountry routes for skiing or snowshoeing, and when the good weather arrives you can clad yourself in neoprene for an undersea adventure.

The possibility to combine activities is another typical characteristic. In Catalonia the distances are short. You can start the morning in a kayak, speeding down the lively waters of a post-thaw river in the Catalan Pyrenees and then, after a short car journey, finish off your day paddling your kayak around the coast. Super easy. Super fast.

Each adventure has its own landscape

The variety of landscapes is another thing which is very much in the favour of the adventurer. From 3000 metre high mountain tops in the Pyrenees to 280 kilometres of beaches. The Catalan region has many very different landscapes which change throughout the year, in line with the seasons. They are the perfect travel partner for this abundant array of activities.

Catalonia welcomes you to share in its nature. Are you coming to experience it?
